Prenatal care is vital to ensure your baby is healthy when he or she is born. Keeping your regular appointments with your doctor will allow you to monitor your baby’s growth and health.
These visits will also keep you healthy during this physically challenging time.
Pregnancy is a blessing, but it can also be a time of great stress as your body undergoes many changes to grow a baby. Due to this stress, you may develop health conditions that you did not have before you were pregnant.
Most of these conditions are not harmful to you or your baby, such as heartburn, acne, and mild morning sickness, but they can make you miserable throughout your pregnancy if not addressed by your obstetrician.
Additionally, there are some conditions in pregnancy that can be dangerous to you and your baby if not diagnosed and treated properly. Two of the most common ones in the Temecula and Murrieta, CA area are gestational diabetes and gestational hypertension. ***hyperlink to these pages***

The ultrasound probe may be placed on the abdomen (transabdominal) or within the vagina (transvaginal).
Where it needs to be placed is determined by how far along we think you are in your pregnancy at the time of your first prenatal visit.
During this exam, one of the obstetricians at Rancho OBGyn will show you your baby and give you your first baby pictures!
You will also get to listen to your baby’s heartbeat.
Then, we will measure your baby and determine your due date.
Prenatal vitamins are important because they give your body the extra nutrients it needs to ensure your baby is healthy. Prenatal vitamins are specifically formulated to meet your body’s needs during pregnancy and offered more compared to a normal multiple vitamin.
For instance, prenatal vitamins contain extra iron to help you to maintain your blood levels and prevent anemia, which is common in pregnancy. B vitamins help you maintain your energy levels during pregnancy. Folic acid is vital in the development of your baby’s brain and spine.
The labs ordered during your first visit depend on how far along your pregnancy is, but include tests for:
